Climb the rocks Seven Brothers.. Enjoy the view from Mount Ezhova.. Visit a free tour of the Buddhist monastery on Mount Kachkanar. Take an evening walk on the Lower Tour.. Climb to the observation deck of the quarry on Mount Grace in Kushva.
On this route there is where to walk and what to see: six cities, seven mountains and many other sights. All these places are available all year round. The highlight of the trip is climbing the Kachkanar mountain and visiting the Buddhist monastery.
It's better to climb Mount Kachkanar on a weekend. In the immediate vicinity of the top of the Kachkanar Mining and Processing Complex digs a new quarry. And, they say, on weekdays during blasting operations security service does not allow tourists to the mountain.
In summer it's better to go to Kolpaki mountain not directly from Kosya, but to drive through Is settlement and then turn to Kachkanar town. The short road at this time of year is available only for SUVs.
